ESD Protection Devices Deliver Low Capacitance

Suited for mobile phones and PC applications, the LXES Series of silicon-based ESD-protection devices are intended for protection of electronic equipment from electrostatic discharges (ESD). A high level of ESD protection is achieved through the devices’ ultra-low-capacitance design, which also minimizes signal loss on high-speed data and transmission lines. Additional features include high suppression levels (less than 100-V output when input voltage is 15 kV) and high repetition durability (1000 cycles at 8-kV contact voltage). Initially, the series includes a two-, four-, and six-line array design along with a single-line device. The next-generation product will expand to a 10-element device that will also contain built-in filtering. Samples are available for approximately $0.20 to $0.60 each with a lead time of six to 10 weeks. MURATA ELECTRONICS NORTH AMERICA INC., Smyrna, GA. (770) 436-1300.
